- Day 1: Dar es salaam to Selous Game Reserve
Meet your driver/guide in Dar es Salaam and drive with lunch box to Selous game reserve. Normally the drive takes up to 7 hours (219km) both tarmac and off road, and on first day normally we will have an evening boat trip
The boat safaris are conducted in sturdy metal boats with a powerful outboard motor on the back and a covered canopy. Each boat safari is guided by a boatman who has grown up on the river and knows all the little nooks and crannies where a boat can sneak through like the back of his hand.
DAY 2 FULL DAY GAME DRIVE
After breakfast full day game drive in a specially modified safari vehicle with a professional guide, in which you should see and learn much about a large number of animals, including all the great favorites – lion, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra – and all the other major species including the now rare African hunting dog. Great variety of bird species.
Packed lunch and time to rest. Your guide will select a location with shade and water nearby to watch animals coming to drink – a place with a clear view all round so that no predator can creep up unseen! Back to the lodge by 6.30 for sunset and dinner when you’re ready
DAY 3- WALKING SAFARI AND DRIVE TO DAR
Walking safaris are a fantastic way to get close to nature and learn more about the smaller species and the bush itself. It's an unforgettable experience to walk within such a vast and untamed area of natural reserve
Although you may spot some giraffes or walk in the footsteps of elephants, our walking safaris are tailored to give you the opportunity to learn about the things you miss from a vehicle or boat - the ecosystem that the animals live in. Learn to identify animal tracks and signs and hear fascinating information about the insects, trees and colorful bird life. Walks are slow-paced, accompanied by both an armed ranger and our expert guide and are around 2-3 hours long. Leaving camp at around 6.30am after a cup of tea or coffee and some homemade biscuits. One of our safari cars drives you the short distance to the entrance gate of the game reserve where you pick up your armed ranger before heading to the start of the walk. Walking safari will take about 2-3 hours then we will have breakfast and start drive back to Dar es Salaam and this will be the end of our tour
